The award-winning sailing yacht features interior styling by Dölker+Voges who have created a modern and fresh feel onboard. The main deck aft is the social hub of the yacht boasting a 24-seater dining table with a retractable skylight, perfect for lavish dinner parties or relaxed dinners onboard.

Guests will also enjoy her spacious sundeck, a place where they can take a refreshing dip in the pool or bask in the sunshine on the surrounding sunpads. The yacht is ideal for those who wish to celebrate underneath the stars, with three outdoor bars on offer, one of which is the main deck bar with seating for 12.

Accommodating 12 guests across 7 beautifully decorated cabins, the yacht is versatile for a variety of yacht charter party configurations. The master suite, set quite apart from the other cabins on the bridge deck, comes with his and her bathrooms, a private elevator and its very own terrace.

She is also capable of carrying up to 17 crew onboard, including a world-class chef, who will ensure a seamless and relaxed yacht charter vacation.
